Tuan Le tops field to win World Series of Poker event #5, $10,000 buy-in 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball (Limit) World Championship. A field of 120 players paid $10,000 for a seat in the first 2014 World Series of Poker Championship event. After the final cards were dealt there was one, Tuan Le, with bragging rights of being the world's best 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball player.
Tuan Le is a profesional poker player from Los Angeles and his style of ultra aggressive play lends itself well to the characteristics of triple draw lowball. He used this advantage and a little luck to best the field of 120 mostly experienced, professional players and collect first place money amounting to $355,324. Le also received a gold WSOP champion's bracelet after his 9–6 ousted second place finisher, Justin Bonomo, holding 9-8. Third place finisher Eli Elerra won a WSOP bracelet in the 2013 $2,500 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball event.
The following lists the final table order of finish and money won from the $1,128,000 purse:
